Terrain Image import problem

Hi All,

Having some trouble with terrain images.  I have a DEM in arcGIS 10.2 that I made in civil 3d.  I've exported that layer to a 16bit tiff file uncompressed, but it seems when it is read into CityEngine 2012.1 it seems like it is converted to 8bit, and most of the elevation data is lost.  It's either 1, or 0....which makes a crazy terrain.  I also notice that the image is inverse.  It says in the help file that 16bit images are supported.  Am I doing something wrong?  I've attached some images so you can see what I am talking about
How it looks in arcGIS:

How it looks in CityEngine 2012.1:

Thanks for any help!
